Man saved clinging to roof… 10 miles out to sea

There are not many good news stories coming out of Japan, which is why we have to look for positives where we can -- like this dramatic rescue.

A 60-year-old man has been saved from the roof of his house despite the Japan tsunami washing it 10 miles out to sea.

The man had reportedly gone back to his house to collect belongings after hearing that a big wave was coming, but not made it away in time.

As a result he was left stranded and forced to climb onto his roof when the wave struck, destroying his home in Minamisouma. Luckily, two days later, he was spotted floating at sea on the tin roof and rescued.
